Simple Resource Discovery Systems for Libraries
November 13, 2008
IntroductionThe idea for this workshop was sparked by a recent discussion on the 'lis-infoliteracy' list: is information literacy training essential for students to get the best out of their library resources or should we just be making our resource discovery systems easier to use? The debate will be summarised by one of its protagonists, Mark Hepworth of University of Loughborough. Maggie Fieldhouse will provide an insight into the information seeking behaviour of students and researchers. We will then look at some new 'one-stop shop' library products: Primo, Aquabrowser, ELIN and Encore, which are beginning to be introduced into HE libraries in the UK.
